Follow the Virgin River Rim Trail -lovely!- starting just up the road from the Te-ah campground (very nice!). The trail is (was) well maintained, shaded by old pines and spruces, and graced by wildflowers and interesting mushrooms. To reach Andy Nelson peak/unnamed peak, the highest summit in Kane county, you have to head up the mountain -without a trail- when you are approximately east/SE of the summit. That area had less deadfall to clamber over. Its probably about 200-300 yards up to the summit. This uphill, off-trail, over-the-logs, through-the-thorny-currants climb was the "demanding" section for some in my group.
